I am well aware about the bootstrapping issue.

But this is nothing which can't be overcome:
1. Build incrementally (this is what glibc, the kernel and GCC do).
2. Make glib a drop in-package to pkgconfig (This is what GCC does with some of
its components)
3. Make building and using pkgconfig's glib an option to pkg-config.
